So I’ve never actually worried about the chemicals that are in makeup until a colleague of mine (a grade 8 ethics teacher) gave me a list of harsh chemicals that are used in makeup – and I freaked! I always knew that makeup wasn’t good for your face – but I never realized the extent of chemicals in some brands. I kept this in mind while I was shopping at Sephora last weekend (with my $20 VIB coupon of course), and came across the Tarte brand. Recently I’ve heard a lot about this line from other makeup artists, so I decided to check it out. I spoke to the sales woman at Sephora, and she uses products from this line as well (maybe she was buttering me up – who knows, but it worked!). She went on and on ranting and raving about the brand – I was sold (good job!). I settled on the Tarte Jewellery box from their new holiday collection – and I am in love. Not only does it not contain any harsh chemicals which are bad for your face – but it also helps you draft up hundreds of gorgeous looks! I’ve been wearing something from this huge palette every day since I bought it (so worth the money).
The eyeshadows are soft and blend-able with amazing pigment, the highlight is standard, I haven’t used the bronzer because it’s a little too light for my skin tone – but I have been using the lip glosses as… (drum roll please)… cream blushes! I love the way they glide on so smooth, and because they are natural it’s not bad for your skin.
So ladies, why not get yourself an early gift this holiday season and pick up one of these palettes. They’re amazing and you will get your money’s worth – and more importantly you deserve it!
